答：Early Admissin和Early Action，虽然缩写都是EA，但这是两种完全不同的申请政策。卡内基梅隆大学是少数几个提供Early Admission的学校，我们来看看官网上的具体描述：Early Admission is for highly qualified juniors in high school who apply to Carnegie Mellon a year early. It’s ideal for mature, responsible juniors who’ve exhausted the courses offered at their high schools and taken all required standardized testing. Early Admission Deadline Due by: January 1 Notified by: No later than April 15 Enroll by: May 1 Please be aware that: A high school diploma isn’t required at time of application, though we encourage you to make arrangements to receive either a diploma from your high school by the end of your freshman year at Carnegie Mellon, or a General Education Diploma (GED). Without a high school diploma or GED, students cannot receive federal financial aid. Applicants under the age of 17 must contact the Dean of Student Affairs Office to discuss housing, services and resources available. You must be at least 16 years old in order to reside in university housing.
